Prayers for JacknTexas


Many of you know Jack because he has organized a lot of RTE events here the last few years. Saturday morning he injured his leg when his bike started to fall over as he was rolling it out before a ride and he prevented it from going down. Something "snapped" in the back of the lower leg. He's been to the ER and will be seeing a specialist in the next few days to see what the extent of the damage may be. Hopefully it is nothing that will require surgery or him being off his feet for an extended period of time.

Also, Jack is going to be going in for some "porting and polishing" (his words) of his sinuses. This is a pretty serious surgery and he was already going to be off work a few weeks for this. Now there is some concern that the leg injury might interfere with the schedule of the sinus surgery which he REALLY wants to get done so he can get some much needed relief.

Please keep Jack and his wife, Tina, in your prayers.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Ouch and yikes! I hope the leg is just banged up a bit because that would be way better than something breaking or popping out from where it should be. Hoping we all hear good news for him soon!

Praying for you Bro that the leg heals quick, you get ported and polished and that Tina doesn't kill you for being a pain while you are healing up.

Re: Prayers for JacknTexas

I hate it when bikers get hurt doing something we love, rather it is riding or preparing to ride. I can't tell you how many times I have almost hurt myself just trying to move bikes around the garage. I feel for you, understand your predicament, and will pray in ernest for you.
